Victorian illustration to download showing a troop of artillery soldiers on an army exercise. Two riders control a team of four horses, which draw a large cannon. Five gunners sit on the limber (a carriage which supports the gun during transport). Ahead of them, a mounted officer gives the order to attack the ‘enemy’. Enthralled spectators watch in the foreground.
